Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Located in sought after Rockbourne, a beautifully presented 3/4 bedroom Grade II listed cottage set in 0.46 acre including a superb chalet/summerhouse and double garage with attached workshop.

Believed to date in part from the 18th Century, Woodbine Cottage in an extremely appealing cottage of red brick elevation under a newly thatched (2016) roof. The original cottage has been sympathetically extended by the current owners to create a deceptively spacious house with flexible accomodation, one that is presented in a beautiful condition that marries period charm with modern luxury. A spacious sitting room with exposed beam and a wood burning stove leads to the central dining room that opens to the lovely south facing conservatory, which draws the garden in via bi-folding doors on to the terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room has been superbly fitted, whilst there is also a practical utility room and a study, which could be used as a fourth bedroom, and shower room. The first floor boasts three double bedrooms, with the master bedroom benefitting from a dressing area and en suite bathroom. The impeccable presentation and quality of the cottage is reflected in the landscaped garden which also features a versatile oak framed studio ('The Hayloft') with a separate electricity supply with water and drainage services available to be connected.

The sought after village of Rockbourne sits amidst lovely rolling Downland countryside and much of the village is a designated Conservation Area. The thriving community benefits from a reputable primary school - which is within close walking distance - a village hall, a church and popular public house. The Avonside town of Fordingbridge (4 miles) provides a comprehensive range of day to day services, including schooling, a medical/health centre, a good range of local shops, banks and a library. The excellent communications network allows ready access to the regional centres of Salisbury, Bournemouth and Southampton; all have mainline rail links to London Waterloo and there are airports at the latter two. A myriad of footpaths and bridleways exist in the surrounding area and there is magnificent out-riding to be had on Whitsbury Downs; the contrasting moor, heath and woodland of the New Forest is approximately four miles to the East.
